Found July 14, 2012 on Red's Army:
video via Trags Well, at least we know Bass, Wilcox and KG are done deals. The Celtics welcomed back Brandon Bass & Chris Wilcox officially this morning. Although KG was not in attendance, Danny Ainge did say Garnett’s 3 year deal is official as well.

I wouldn’t panic though-this is all probably a matter of dotting I’s and crossing T’s. Ainge is reportedly working on a sign...
